Thirteen students from eleven different countries come together in Finland. Realising there is no way we can curate a coherent exhibition using our disparate ideas from multiple backgrounds, we conclude we must draw some connections between the works.
We decided to create a circle of ideas. Selecting names at random to form a sequence, we each passed a note, hint or rule to the person following us in the circle. This note acted as a certain constraint or inspiration from which to make the work for the show. This way, we not only make our own work but we have a hand in the making of another student’s work as well. The works are intrinsically linked as we watch another student from a different country interpret our idea and we impart our personal touch on someone else’s, forming a tight and united circle.
